It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Think Pink

Do you ever fear that your child will be bullied in school? Do you ever worry that your child could be a bully?

I’m sure all of us hope that our children will be able to deal with them!

If you’ve ever considered the problem at all, here’s a story that will warm your heart. THOSE are the boys who will make their parents proud!

Now we need to hear from their parents and find out what they did right! Kudos to these boys — AND to their parents.

  4. A truly inspirational story.

    It is great to see kids taking the lead in dealing with bullies in a real and practical way. What a brilliant strategy too…challenging the ignorance upon which the bullies made their case.

    This story made a great day even better. Thanks Mary.

  5. This story encourages me to believe that there really are kids out there who have a conscience and know right from wrong. And the fact that they were proactive about the entire thing – so amazing! Each time I hear stories on school bullies I worry about the days my own kids have to enter into that forum. As a bullied kid throughout my early years of high school I truly feel for the underdogs and wish there were more kids such as those in this story to set the example.

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Fantastic. How great to stand up to bullying of any kind, but especially to show a new kid that he doesn’t have to stand alone, doesn’t have to be afraid of how he will be taken in a new place, already discomfitting. This is making me a little teary, it’s so pride-making.

  10. Sorry Mary this is just too good, so I stole it for my blog. (but gave you credit) These guys are hero’s, and it proves that somehow, contrary to the rightwing types assertions, real values, useful admirable values are getting through to our youth.
